Tag - I’m It!

Monday, January 5th, 2009

I was tagged in an online game of tag by Jen Singer over at her terrific MommaBlog at That means I'm now part of a huge Internet-wide game of posting
"Seven Things You Didn't Know About Me."

Here goes:

  1. When I was a teenager, I worked for a restaurant with this oh-so-imaginative name: "The Beef and Turkey." The head cook occasionally burned the turkey when he didn't keep an eye on it because he was sneaking off to smoke a joint outside.
  2. The first time I tried to impress a boy, by going all out on that game where you swing really high on the swings and then jump off and see how far you can jump, my top got caught on the swing and ripped and I accidentally put on a show for the neighborhood kids. King crab legs(Not that there was anything to see at that point.)
  3. I grew up with a Labrador Retriever that I tried like heck to turn into a horse at one point. Built her a stable out of a wooden shipping crate. Made a halter. "Taught" her to jump over things. Hey, she loved the attention. At least I never tried to ride her!
  4. I hate black licorice and anything related to black licorice, including the green version of NyQuil. Phhht.
  5. The only athletic activity that I can beat my husband at is water skiing. (Or at least that was the case 15 years ago at Club Med on our honeymoon…)
  6. I love John Cusack movies, especially "Say Anything."
  7. One of my favorite meals on the planet is a whole pile of Costco's crab legs. Steam those babies, melt a little butter and I'm in heaven.
